With trust in the media and journalists at an all-time low in our country, it is important to hold our peers accountable — and what Jennings Brown did to me, during the most difficult months of my career as a journalist, is unacceptable.
Brown, a freelancer for The Daily Beast at the time, which went on an anti-Pizzagate frenzy without disclosing their connections to the Clintons, did something that no journalist should do to another journalist.
He notified me that he was working on a piece about me for The Daily Beast, and I replied to his interview questions via email.
He ignored all of my answers and wrote a tone-deaf piece insinuating that I was a con man and liar, and that Pizzagate — the claim that people connected to the Clintons abuse children, and refer to these children as “pizza” in their emails — was some kind of scam I was promoting for money.
I woke up one morning to the tsunami of anger from readers of The Daily Beast, who believed Brown’s outrageous assertions about me and harassed me. Some of them filed false reports against me.
In the following months, that article appeared at the top of major search results for my name and the name of my startup, and it caused me a lot of problems.
It made finding partners for my startup more difficult, and later on, it made getting work and paying my bills difficult.
Jennings Brown, knowingly, published a horrific attack piece on me — why? Because I dared to talk about Jeffrey Epstein and John Podesta, two powerful sick men connected to the Clintons?
Was that article punishment, then?
If so, Jennings Brown is some kind of enforcer for very sick people, and not a journalist.
My heart aches when I think how much sooner pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein may have been arrested, and others including pedophile journalist “Dr. Pizza” (Peter Bright), had the public actually believed what I was saying three years ago.
How many fewer children may have been trafficked!
Instead, the frontpage hit piece from Jennings Brown in The Daily Beast — which was republished on MSN and elsewhere — was taken seriously by millions of readers.
Instead going after the men I was focused on reporting about — John Podesta and Jeffrey Epstein — the public went after me.
I ended up suing The Daily Beast and Jennings Brown, which is why I have been relatively silent on this chapter of my professional career. Until now.
The case was dismissed over the Summer, which allows me to talk publicly about what Jennings Brown did now.
Hence this post here on FULCRUM — which will live in perpetuity.
Let’s make one thing very clear: what Jennings Brown did to me was shameful.
What he did to the truth community — slowing down Pedogate/Pizzagate truth for more than a year — was even more shameful.
Jennings Brown — a fellow professional journalist, misled me, maligned me, and completely betrayed my trust in him as a seemingly competent human being.
What he published was sinister. The impact of it was even more sinister.
Launching personal attacks — against those who were leading the charge against wealthy pedophiles — is probably a chapter of Brown’s career that he’d like to see fall away.
Let’s make sure it remains front and center, forever. This was always the truth:
